It's 8:45am. Is your crew on-site?
If you are responsible for preventing theft and vandalism of a large property such as a construction site, car dealership, or storage facility for expensive materials you will have multiple surveillance cameras in place, hopefully capturing what’s going on at your site at all times. Rather than having staff respond to after hour activity or paying for excessively expensive physical guard services, you enlisted a video monitoring station to be your eyes and ears on site.
More often than not, clients contact SafewithUlli because they are frustrated with paying a lot of money for 24/7 real-time video surveillance, but never being able to catch anyone in a criminal act.
The more cameras being watched by an operator, the less chance they have of catching important incidents. Pre-scheduled “surveillance tours” are great to find out about problems after the act, but they take place much too late to prevent criminal acts from happening in the first place.
Event-based video monitoring is the only way to go. Only true, pre-defined activity should trigger the camera to notify the monitoring station. However, traditional video motion detection is notorious for false alarms due to rain, snow, wind, lighting conditions, shaking of the camera mounted on a pole, etc.
MOBOTIX introduced MxActivitySensor in 2013, reducing false alarms up to 90%. Video monitoring fans can now have their systems monitored without getting bombarded with false alarms and unnecessary phone calls at all hours of the night. SafewithUlli provides event-based video monitoring for MOBOTIX camera systems via a monitoring station that specializes in MOBOTIX IP video technology.
